When it comes to DIY wedding ideas, save the date cards or magnets are a relatively new trend. The purpose of a save the date is to respect your guests' time while also ensuring they can attend your nuptials. Typically, a DIY wedding craft such as a save the date is sent months in advance of your big day; so your loved ones have ample time to block off the date on their calendars. As is the case with any printed correspondence for your wedding day, there are certain etiquette mistakes you'll want to keep in mind. 

Namely, you will want to avoid sending your save the dates as soon as you get engaged. Although you are undoubtedly excited about your wedding plans, once all the vendor deposits and miscellaneous costs begin to add up, you may realize you need to edit the guest list. If you've already sent your cards, there is no turning back - you must invite those people to the wedding. It is extremely bad form to have them make travel and hotel reservations, rearrange their schedule, and skip out on their annual family vacation in order to make it to your big day...and then not get invited.

In order to avoid inviting more people than you can afford, take your time and carefully consider your budget. Major familial strain can occur over who is and is not invited to your wedding, so bypass some stress and frustration and send out your DIY save the dates when you're certain you can actually invite everyone on your guest list.

This is a very welcome kind of invitation especially for someone like me who collects fridge magnets. Although wood is a bit pricey, it's worth it for a once-in-a-lifetime event of your life

I love the idea of sending out magnetic save the dates, because my fridge is covered in save the date postcards anyway! It definitely kills two birds with one stone.
